How to Fix Your Air Conditioner When It Freezes

Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But sometimes things don’t work properly and ice collects in or around your cooling equipment. This may negatively affect crucial components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve stumbled upon ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to contact our cooling Experts at 407-329-7661. Our technicians are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in Orlando.

While there are different reasons ice could form in or around your cooling system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.

Some of these routine tasks include the following:

Changing the Air Filter

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage looking at your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you change your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

Without the right supply of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most frequent origin of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in resolving these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

Damaged wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like those at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Show There’s a More Pressing Issue

There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner works forever. And if you have an older one that runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being made.
